Long term rental

Post Posted: Sat Feb 23, 2019 6:30 pm

I’m looking for a long term rental and I know it’s difficult to find in the more touristy areas and so I was wondering if it was easier to find something in Faro.
Is there anyone living in Faro who can tell me more about it and where the best places to live are.

I don't live in Faro but know it quite well. The answer to your question is yes and you will have plenty of choice. Walking round the town and checking in agents is probably best since they are not all on line but there is a world wide longtermlettings.com website which allows you to search Faro to get an idea of what is available. You might also want to consider Montenegro, mid way between Faro and Faro Island. The university is there and so there is usually long term rental availability.

Thank you for that information that is really helpful.
My concern with Montenegro is that it’s really close to the airport so would you hear planes all the time.

Is Faro a nice place to live and do a lot people speak English or is it more Portuguese?
Is there somewhere near by which is not too far from beaches but would have long term rentals.
Thanks for your help

Faro is not really a tourist destination and the population is mainly Portuguese though you will find more of them speak English than is the case further north in the rural areas. Faro runway is east west in orientation and although the flight path is over the Ria Formosa the southern part of Faro town is under the footprint for noise. Although Montenegro is closer to the airport it is not under the flightpath. The historic centre of Faro is attractive. Montenegro is a modern town with a population that works at the airport, university and in Faro. Algarve resort areas will have apartments on 6 month rental agreements over the winter months but few in summer when they can rent to tourists. Almancil a few kms in from the coast serves the resorts of Quinta do Lago and Val do Lobo and will have some long term rentals.

Again thank you for the information.
What is Almancil like
Would you be ok having a chat with me over the phone as I would love to pick your brains about the area in one go!

Almancil started life as a village but has grown to provide services to The Golden Triangle. It has all the facilities locally. Medical, supermarkets, bars, restaurants etc but it is a workaday kind of place. Where to rent obviously depends on your reasons for coming to the Algarve but you should be aware that public transport between any of the Algarve resorts and the local towns is quite limited
